5.11 Tactical® Unveils Limited-Edition, Custom-Designed Strider™ Knife

MODESTO, CA—5.11 Tactical® announced that it has partnered with knife manufacturer, Strider™ Knives, to release the Strider/5.11 Strider Military Folder (SMF), a custom-designed tactical knife. Made in the United States, the knife is manufactured with CTS-B75P steel for corrosion and wear resistance. There will only be 511 knives made. Each piece, available at www.511tactical.com, will include a custom nylon case, a “Raider” patch inspired by the WWII Marine Raiders’ patch and a certificate of authenticity signed by Tom Davin, 5.11 Tactical Chief Executive Officer, and Strider Knives Co-owner, Duane Dwyer.

The Strider/5.11 SMF knife is engineered with minimum components while staying true to the key components Strider Knives have become known for, including a titanium slab frame lock, a glass epoxy laminate handle and a rough peel surface for positive grip. The blade design is a drop point, hand flat ground with a simple break on the spine and no false edge.

The Strider/5.11 SMF knife boasts features including a custom-made pivot pin, custom fasteners, and a Titanium handle with G10 scales. For durability and long-lasting performance, this is the first Strider knife to incorporate CTS-B75P steel—an alloy from Carpenter Technologies that is highly resistant to corrosion and wear—allowing users to more easily maintain a sharp edge for an extended period of time. The knife will be available in February 2014.
